As in history, the hatred Emperor COMMODUS appears in person in the arena, of course winning his bouts. COMMODUS, who ruled from 180 to 192, is known as a mad tyrant. Joaquin Phoenix comments the Emperor's wardrobe, 'The minute I put the costumes on, I felt like I was in a completely different world. It was fantastic. After a while, they didn't seem like costumes; they felt natural, which really helped me become my character.' >>> TOGA AND ROMAN SANDALS
